Assemblyman Michael A. Montesano (R,I,C-Glen Head) is turning his office into Santa’s Toy Shop by designating it as a collection site for the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots program. Each year, the Marine Corps holds the toy drive to collect new, unwrapped toys to distribute to children in the community. With the holiday season fast approaching, Montesano is highlighting the importance of giving back this holiday season.
“Some children wake up on Christmas without ever having the feeling of pure joy when opening their very own present,” said Montesano. “By dropping off a toy for a needy child, our community can bring a smile to every face. I encourage those of us who are more fortunate to pick up a toy, no matter how small, and brighten the holiday season for a child.”
The collection box will be available for donations at Assemblyman Montesano’s office from now until Friday, December 16, 2011. For more information on the Toys for Tots program, you can visit their Web site. Constituents are always encouraged to connect with Assemblyman Montesano at his Hicksville office at 516-937-3571, or follow him on Facebook at www.facebook.com/Assemblyman.Michael.Montesano.
